X-plorers is somewhere in the middle of Starships & Spacemen and White Star. Both thematically and in terms of rules. There is a more of an old school vibe of this one. So to continue my analogies to the point of breaking, X-plorers is more Buck Rogers, [...]

This is a rules-light (38 pages of rules) RPG that intends to be a scifi version of the 1974 OD&D, and succeeds admirably. The core mechanics (class-based, ascending AC, d20/d6, roll high) are based on Swords & Wizardry Whitebox, but there is a lot that [...]

Starting from the "what-if" premise that the creators of the original fantasy rpg had instead written a sci-fi rpg, X-plorers delivers a lean, rules-lite system perfect for a fast-paced space opera style game. The system is level-based with four character [...]

Game play rebalances the rules quite convincingly, to a brief look-through, for the different conditions of SF, with new sets of ability scores, classes and equipment, learning, in various ways, from the experience of a range of SF systems over the years. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
